The Widow's Might Program seeks to instruct, encourage, and empower these women shown below by providing food assistance each month, five goats in the first year (to help them start their own self sustaining herd), skills training, and Bible instruction. The cost of this program is $65 per month, and the length of the program for each sponsored widow is 24 months.
We are thrilled that several dozen widows have already completed this 24 month program and another many are currently in the program. Others have been interviewed and qualified for this program, but still wait for sponsors.
